Spam comments in BlogEngine.NET 2.0

Suppose that an anonymous user is visiting the Blog. In such case I understand that a comment not approved by the author (i.e., spams stored in the Spam box) shall not appear.

However, BlogEngine.NET 2.0 shows a spam to an anonymous user. I understand that there is no setting option in the control panel to show the spams to an anonymous user.

Does anybody have such experience? Or is this very special case occurred only in my environment?

Sorry, I misunderstood that any comment in the spam box will not be shown to anonymous users unless is approved by the administrator. I found that all the comments (including the spam comments) will be shown to any user when the setting "Moderate comments (Comments will be pending administrator's approval)" in the control panel is unchecked.

However, I think that the description "Comments will be pending administrator's approval" will have to be changed to "If unchecked all comments including those classified as spam will be shown to all users".
